Financial Activity Analysis

Question 1

Students are to develop a health business case including a zero-based budget that shows skills in breaking down costs for a service or project in relation to planned activity levels and outcomes or deliverables. This business case is to be developed from one of the examples available on VUWS or in discussion with the class tutor.

For your chosen service or health facility prepare a budget for this new service or project. Prepare this in a report format and as outlined on the VUWS website. In preparing the budget students should show the build-up of the budget from a zero base including all significant line items.

A contingency plan must be included (what happens if desired funding is not available to the optimal level desired) with at 10% less than the optimal budget. Show deletions and cost cutting measures.

Include a financial activity analysis and a break-even analysis chart to show at what level of activity the services ‘break even’. In the public sector this mens to come in on budget rather than make a profit.

Question 2


Watson views the ‘carative factors’ as a guide for the core of nursing. As she continued to evolve her theory, Watson introduced the concept of clinical caritas processes, which have now replaced her carative factors. Caritas originates from the Greek vocabulary, meaning to cherish and to give special loving attention (Watson, 2001).


Analyze the application of Watson clinical caritas in enhancing the quality of patient care and improving patient outcomes through the emphasis of meta-paradigm concepts in nursing.
